    trying to install heroes of newerth on ringtail

    Help--- I am at wit's end. I was told by a friend of a really great game and I want to try it out. I navigated to the HoN website and downloaded the linux game client. I saved the file in my downloads folder, right click on the file, go to properties, go to permissions, and select for it to open as an executable file. It attempts to open in gedit and stops. What am I doing wrong? Please help. Yes, I am new to ubuntu.

    Is it a .sh file?

    If so, open a terminal and cd to the directory you downloaded it to.

    Then run it by typing: >sh filename.sh​ and that should run it
